Our Story

Headed by Jean-Philippe and Yumi, VéloTopo captures the love, legacy, and folklore of some of Europe's most spectacular cycling destinations.

Born in 2006, VéloTopo brings together a pure passion for cycling with close native knowledge of Europe's finest mountain scenes. Rather than spreading cycling thin across multiple corners, VéloTopo condenses their expertise so they can curate deep and daring tours of the Pyrenees, the Alps, Provence and Corsica.

VéloTopo takes cycling tours to a whole new level with state-of-the-art vehicles, equipment, a team dedicated to helping you break your personal boundaries, and a desire to keep you breathing in beauty with every turn of the wheel. Because every itinerary and tour is entirely custom made to fit your wildest desires at VéloTopo we redefine the true meaning of boutique bicycle tours.

A French native with US nationality, Jean-Philippe grew up in the soaring peak playground of the Pyrenees.

Alongside that native knowledge of the area, it was also working as an elite special force mountain commando in the Alps that gifted him vital mountain guiding and rescue experience. Since then, Jean-Philippe has spent a lifetime traversing these mountains on his beloved bike. A professional and highly experienced cycling coach with dual guide licenses in both France and the USA, Jean-Philippe's local knowledge of the roads, routes, trails and tight mountain passes across the Pyrenees, Alps, Corsica, and all mountain regions makes him a vault of invaluable insider knowledge. This native expertise combined with decades of cycling and mountain rescue experience ensures that he can guide you safely to glory, across some of Europe's most challenging and enchanting cycling trails.

Born and raised in Japan, Yumi holds both a teaching license and a master's degree in linguistics.

Yumi found her love for sport at a young age and has participated in competitive events all her life. After finishing her studies she left Japan for Central America, where her love of logistics and finely-tuned organization skills lent itself perfectly to her work in cultural communication, PR, business logistics and more. Later extensive travels across multiple continents only added to this skillset, along with pursuing her personal passion for cycling. Yumi's continued logistical expertise has seen her synchronizing large-scale cycling events and an entire cycling club in North-America. Her multifaceted approach to perfect organization, her commitment to detail and her warm dedication to our guests is one of the hallmarks that gifts VéloTopo its ability to curate out of this world adventures. From fine-tuning the details to legendary logistics planning, with Yumi behind the scenes, your tour won't skip a beat.

The freedom of the open road, the heart pounding pleasure of conquering climbs, and the chance to immerse yourself in the rare heart and heritage of Europe's best cycling destinations – this is just the tip of the iceberg.

When you pedal alongside VéloTopo – all the details are delivered with professionalism, passion, and a promise that we will take you deeper into the cycling lore, the landscapes, and the local culture. With VéloTopo it's not a race, but a journey and we invite you to soak up every second.
